The town’s football focus will turn to Tandragee Road tomorrow (Saturday) as Annagh United welcome Ards in a top-of-the-table clash.

A bumper crowd is expected for the NIFL Championship One date due to the perfect start enjoyed by Annagh, a strong traditional away support associated with the visitors and the absence of a senior fixture.

Annagh can boast three wins from the opening three games following a dream debut in the Irish League’s second tier.

Ards arrive in town aiming to knock Annagh off top spot - with manager Niall Currie hoping to maximise any inside knowledge of his former club.

Portadown’s proposed Mid-Ulster derby against Glenavon has been rescheduled for September 22 due to the Lurgan outfit’s international commitments. However, Ports fans can expect to spot a few familiar faces at Tandragee Road thanks to a string of players with past links to Shamrock Park now on the Annagh books.

Kick-off will be 3 o’clock, with admission £6 and £3.
